A blockchain is a *distributed* data-structure which, hopefully, will be identical in all replications. When you think about mutability, it means that you achieved mutating this *distributed* data-structure.
To convince others about the change the minimum requirement for them to consider it is that replaced blocks are valid…
If you mean some tactics in the way of bidding to influence other bidders decision making, it’s possible. That kind of action could be analyzed too.
Also, since is running on a non-synchronous network (internet), a lot of other things are possible. Something similar happens with high-speed trading.
It’s a nice discussion.
That’s possible. In fact, initially I considered supporting commands for Algos transfer, e.g: /transfer <to> <amount>.
Extending this PoC with more features or others blockchains isn’t in my current plans, but anyone is encouraged to contribute.
Mining hardware can also be seen as a “buffer”, a place where units of work deposit before making their way to their final destination: the ledger .
Nice point. The buffer could be thought as weighted depending on how specialized the hardware is. (CPU < GPU < ASIC).
